Hello, Beautiful | Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Hello Beautiful Release Blog Hop

Today we’re celebrating the Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Hello Beautiful release! If you arrived from Virginia Lu‘s blog, you’re right on track. If you want to hop along from the beginning, visit the Altenew Card Blog. Check the bottom of this post for giveaway information and the full blog hop list.

This month’s kit features a gorgeous stamp set, coordinating dies, layering coloring stencils, and an embossing folder!

To recreate this card:

  1. Stamp the floral images in Permanent Black ink onto white cardstock
  2. Position the first layering coloring stencil over the blooms and use Post-it tape to temporarily hold it in place and to mask off any open areas of the stencils that are for a different layer or a different color (like the leaves)
  3. Use a blending brush to blend Pink Diamond ink over the exposed area
  4. Position the next layer stencil over the image and blend on the next deeper color; repeat until all the layers of the bloom have been inked up with Pinkalicious, Rubellite, and Razzleberry (these four colors are also available in a set), and create some variation within a single layer by intensifying the color in some areas
  5. Stencil the leaves using Bamboo, Parrott, and Grass Field inks
  6. Use yellow and orange markers to color the centers of the flowers (or use the stencils!)
  7. Die cut the images and set aside
  8. Mask off the borders of an A2-sized panel of white cardstock using Post-it Tape
  9. Use a blending brush to blend Aqualicious ink over the exposed area of the panel, concentrating the color towards the bottom; deepen the color at the bottom with a bit of Teal Cave and then remove the mask
  10. Stamp the sentiment ink black pigment ink
  11. Use glue dots to adhere the centers of the flowers to the background; selectively add small pieces of tape behind the petals to lift them away from the background
  12. Adhere the card front to a card base
